Charles Hatfield specializes in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Latin American literature and intellectual history. His book manuscript, Latin America and Anti-Universalism explores the intellectual underpinnings and political consequences of the politics of identity and difference associated with Latinoamericanismo. A former fellow of the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA), Hatfield is the editor and translator of two books of Latin American poetry: Little Stones at My Window: Selected Poems by Mario Benedetti (Curbstone, 2003) and When Night is Darkest: Selected Poems by Miguel Barnet (José Martí, 2002). He is currently Associate Editor of the journal Translation Review.
